Rehearsal Dinner Theme Ideas
BACKYARD FIESTA DINNER PARTY
Is there anything more enjoyable than a fiesta!? Especially one that is outside? I love this fiesta table below that has an elegant feel to it. It’s perfect for a rehearsal dinner party.
The use of fresh flowers, succulents and terra cotta pots create such a formal atmosphere and I could see them pairing perfectly with backyard catering from a high end Mexican restaurant.

COASTAL HERB GARDEN DINNER PARTY
I can’t say enough about this gorgeous coastal herb garden rehearsal party! The palms definitely lends themself to more of a tropical environment, but I could also see a replication of this theme without the palms in colder environments with just herbs!
I love the use of the glass vases for height and the cement vases for the herbs. The birch succulents are perfection as are the neutral linen napkins.
The entire party has as air of sophistication and I bet the table smells AMAZING!

COLORFUL BOHEMIAN DINNER PARTY
This is for sure my favorite dinner party of all the rehearsal parties I’m sharing! I mean, look at all those colors. You know I’m a sucker for pink and those napkins wrapped in colorful pom poms make my heart sing. They look so fantastic against the bright blue chargers.
The floral arrangements are stunning and I love the personalized terra cotta pot bases for name plaques. All in all, this would be my dream rehearsal dinner….plus Topo Chico!

DOWN HOME REHEARSAL DINNER
Now this down home rehearsal dinner screams Texas and I’m here for it! The red chairs, gingham table cloth and pops of yellow florals are fantastic.
I love how this couple brought their personality to the dinner while keeping the evening classy and creative!
I could go on and on about those rustic wire lamps! I bet they were a pain to string, but oh so worth it.

SOUTHWEST THEMED DINNER PARTY
This southwest dinner party, much like the bohemian party is so up my alley! I’m obsessed with Santa Fe and this is everything I love about that charming town.
The setting is beautiful, but that large patterned table-cloth is such a fantastic focal point. I love the pink and coral napkins and the pops of yellow floral absolutely make the entire scene!
I could see this dinner pairing perfectly with adapted navajo tacos!!
PREPPY REHEARSAL DINNER
This one is for your southern friends who love gingham! You wouldn’t think that gingham on gingham would work, but it TOTALLY does here. I think it’s because of the gorgeous neutrals they are using.
The pink florals give the table a perfect pop and those vases are so southern and fitting for the table.
COLORFUL SOUTHERN DINNER PARTY
Oh man! I love living in the south! This party is so charming, eclectic and seems downright fun. The hanging sunflower garland is so unique and the perfect focal point. Props to whoever hung it because I’m sure it took forever!
And can we talk about the colorful chairs? Yes please! I bet they went to Goodwill and found all the fun shapes and colors available! It seems like it shouldn’t work, but it totally does.
A BACKYARD PICNIC
I could not love this backyard picnic rehearsal dinner more! I don’t know if it’s the miss-matched baskets, rustic picnic tables or the twinkle lights, but this rehearsal dinner is immensely charming.
I could see a live band playing the background, fresh baguettes served and kids running around the yard laughing. I bet their night ended in dancing under those amazing twinkle lights!
WHIMSICAL DINNER PARTY
I can totally see my daughter’s wedding rehearsal dinner being whimsical like this one below. She loves soft pastels, whimsy and everything magical.
The florals completely make this dinner table and the light blue and pink tableware are stunning.
TUSCAN DINNER THEMED PARTY
I’ve never been to Tuscany, but a Tuscany themed-dinner party to look a lot like this! I love the rustic candles, greenery and spots of maroon (pomegranates).
There is something about the rustic wooden chairs, ample wine glasses and the fresh herbs that takes me to the Italian country-side.
I love the gold-framed table numbers and the beautiful olive branches!
TROPICAL DINNER PARTY
We are going from Italy to the tropics! I’ve been VERY into palm leaves for the last few years. The bring such a huge burst of color, texture and lots of structure! They are over-sized, inexpensive and the perfect way to bring a focal point to a dinner party.
This host placed the palms not only above the table, but on it. The palms in addition to the pineapples and tropical florals makes you feel like you are sitting on the beach in Hawaii.
Lastly my favorite detail of this tropical dinner party are the darling summer hats sitting on all the guests seats. What a fun touch and memorable party favor!
UNDER THE STARS REHEARSAL DINNER
There is something about eating under a stream of lights that is so magical, memorable and whimsical. The lights combined with the HUGE spray of eucalyptus branches create such a gorgeous table setting.
The centerpiece is full of greens and beautiful white and red florals that bring a beautiful pop of color.
